    • Interact with live animals from Puget Sound waters while learning about their habitat, feeling their unique textures and discovering how they co-exist in our vital ecosystem. 
    • See Science On a Sphere, an astonishing piece of technology that uses computers and video projectors to display dynamic animated images of the atmosphere, oceans and land on an illuminated globe six feet in diameter. 
    • Roam among several moving, roaring, robotic dinosaurs in a life-like prehistoric environment, learning about their habitats and behaviors. 
    • Explore how personal choices can positively affect your health and wellbeing through hands-on inventions, gadgets, activities and experiences. 
    • Engage in live science experiments with our talented science interpretation team, featuring liquid nitrogen, fiery explosions, shattering tennis balls and more. 
    • Splash into science with our outdoor array of fun water exhibits – move water uphill, shoot off water cannons and take a spin on our water wheel.

    For an additional fee, guests can explore outer space in Pacific Science Center’s planetarium; enjoy vibrant music and spectacular laser light shows in the Laser Dome; experience the immersive power of an IMAX® documentary on either one of Pacific Science Center’s two IMAX Theaters; or discover what's new in our traveling exhibition hall.

    We went with teens who found so many activities to do, we had trouble dragging them out. The adults found it interesting, too. The water activities in the fountain area were lots of fun. Even little kids will find something they like.More
